Vesuvius and the First Pompeii
One of the world's deadliest volcanoes, Mount Vesuvius erupted 2000 years ago, burying the town of Pompeii. The discovery of this devastated town offered a well-preserved snapshot of life during Roman times. But now archeologists have found that Vesuvius also erupted 1800 years earlier, with the same devastating results. This time, they found a Bronze Age village, buried in ash, frozen in time.
